Aisin AS69RC Deep Transmission Pan
No image available of a polished finish part.
|Black powder coating
Volume: 3 to 4 quarts over stock
Dimensions: Click here for dimensions
Number of Bolts: 20 (Note that the older AS68RC transmission uses 18 bolts)
This PML pan features heavy duty construction, extra capacity, drain, and cooling fins.
The Aisin AS69RC transmission is found in 2013 and newer Ram 3500, 4500, 5500 trucks with the 6.7 Cummins Diesel.
PML designed this pan to provide as much clearance as possible to the bolts at the rear of the pan. There is a cross member below these bolts and to access them on the stock pan or the PML pan, you will probably need to jack up the transfer case. This pan works with the stock gasket and filter.
PML provides new mounting bolts and a magnetic drain plug with the pan.
Always check your truck to verify your configuration and clearance.
Titan XD Diesel Truck Owners: The 2016 and newer Nissan Titan XD diesel trucks have an Aisin A466ND transmission and it looks like the pan maybe compatible. See these pictures of 2016 Nissan Titan XD stock parts and this PML pan.

Drain and Optional Temperature Sending Unit Locations
PML located the drain plug on the driver's side of the pan. On the side of the pan, the drain plug is less likely to get damaged.
The other three bosses can be drilled and tapped for a temperature sending unit if needed.
PML designed three locations that optionally can be drilled and tapped for a temperature sending unit:
If you want PML to drill and tap the pan, there is a $40 machining charge per hole and we would need to know the size. We can machine between 1/8 NPT and 1/2 NPT. Default size is 1/8 NPT if you require a different size, please call to order.
The inside of the PML pan is baffled to help direct the fluid flow toward the filter pick up.

Our thanks to all those who have emailed us pictures of their installations:
Also, our thanks to RevMax Torque Converters for their help with the development of this pan.
Several customers have recommended using a 5mm ball socket for the three rear bolts under the cross member.
2015 Ram 3500 6.7 Crew Cab 4x4 Dually
Don installed the PML AS69RC deep pan on his 2015 Ram 3500HD 4x4 Dually Crew Cab with the Cummins 6.7 diesel engine. He reported that the pan fit great and the installation took about 2 hours. A ball socket 5mm Allen long reach wrench was needed to access the PML bolts at the rear.
2015 Ram 3500 6.7 4x4 SRW
Eldon installed the PML AS69RC deep pan on his 2015 Ram 3500HD 4x4 Single Rear Wheel with the Cummins 6.7 diesel engine truck. He reported no interference with factory skid plate.
Here are the steps he followed: Removed 19mm stock drain plug. Removed 3 15mm transmission mount nuts with deep socket. Jacked transmission up via jack and wood shoring against transfer case, and removed rear bolts from stock pan with ¼" drive 10mm socket and wobble (10 mm socket with integral wobble would work better). Installed PML improved pan with extended reach 5mm ball end allen and torque wrench. Tightened 15 mm plug on new pan. Refill required an additional 4 quarts of fluid.
2014 Ram 3500 6.7 Megacab 4x4 Dually
Jeff installed the PML AS69RC deep pan on his 2014 Ram 3500HD Megacab 4x4 Dually with the Cummins 6.7 diesel engine. He noted that it probably is not possible to access the bolts at the rear of the either stock pan or the PML pan with out jacking up the transfer case and that it is so easy to jack up, he wouldn't even try.

2014 Ram 3500 6.7 4x4 SRW
Nate at Strictly Diesel installed our new pan on his 2014 Ram 3500HD 6.7 diesel 4x4 truck. Here are his comments from his installation:
Overall, the installation went well. Our thanks to Nate for his feedback and pictures.
2013 Ram 3500 6.7 2WD Dually
Dave reported that the PML pan "Fit like a glove!". He had to use a ¼ drive 10mm socket and grind an old ¼ square phillips screwdriver to make a ball driver to remove the stock bolts under the cross member. Then to install the PML pan, he unbolted transmission mount and raised transmission up ½ inch. He let down the transmission and to tighten the bolts he used a long 5mm ball end allen with short end cut off with a ¼ drive 5mm socket and ratchet. Our thanks to Dave for his feedback and pictures.
